  • North’s Wayne thought close to...

        HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior softball player Jessica Wayne never really wanted to be far away from home when it came to selecting a college.
        That made things work out just perfectly when one afternoon this spring, Spalding University head coach Art Williams introduced himself after one of the Lady Eagles’ games against Presentation. It didn’t take long for Wayne to realize that the Golden Eagles were the team for her.

  • Heritage Hill hosts the 2016...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – On July 19-20, the PGA of America -- Kentucky Division brought the 2016 Kentucky Women’s Open to Heritage Hill Golf Club off Cedar Grove Road in Shepherdsville.
        Overall, 63 women teed off in the event that included both professional and amateur competitors. For this tournament, Heritage Hill played at 5,980-yards with par being listed at 72.

  • Recruiting this year took some...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Picking a college is never easy.
        Throw in sales pitches from athletic coaches and it can all really go to your head.
        And let’s be honest, coaches at Division III and NAIA type schools are salesmen, maybe not like big time basketball and football coaches, but they are selling their product. At smaller schools, coaches are not only expected to win, but also to bring in what for the most part paying students.

  • MW defense stands strong to win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- After losing a couple of games to finish third in its district tournament, one might think that manager David Clevinger and his team might be a little down.

    But the Mount Washington U-7 All-Stars were ready for play in the West Kentucky State Tournament at Okolona.

    In fact, the team from Mount Washington did not lose a game in pool play and then completed the sweep by winning the state title 8-7 in eight innings over Germantown.

  • WORLD SERIES BOUND: Blue Lick 18...

     HILLVIEW -- For some, it might be the first time to fly on an airplane.

    For others, it might be the first time to travel outside the Kentuckiana area.

    But for Challis Ford, it will be his first trip to the Babe Ruth World Series.

    After coaching young men the art of baseball for the past 45 years, Ford will have his first opportunity to join nine other elite teams from across the United States.

  • CHASING THE DREAM: Bickett works...

     PIONEER VILLAGE -- After sitting on the bench for most of his high school varsity career, Evan Bickett packed up his glove for what was presumably the last time. 

    The plan was simple: go to Indiana University Southeast and earn a criminal justice degree. 

    No more baseball, strictly academics.

    In the back of his mind, though, Bickett knew there was a chance to do something more.

  • Blue Lick wins state; looks for...

     OKOLONA -- Coaching youth baseball for 45 years, Challis Ford has been close but he’s never had a team make the World Series at any age group.

    After his Blue Lick team won its second consecutive state title, Ford had a simple request -- take an old man who loves baseball to that national Babe Ruth tournament.

    Manager Tommy Parker, Ford’s long-time friend and coach, believes this group of 18 and under players might be that team to make that dream possible.

  • Summer may have just started,...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The baseball All-Star game was just last week, the Fourth of July is still a vivid memory and summer has officially been with us for less than a month.
        The not so tactfully named ‘dead period’ is well...dead and gone for another summer.
        Yet fall starts next Friday.

  • 2016 West Kentucky U-12 Metro...
  • Dolphins at Cooper Farms have 80...

         HILLVIEW – Summer and swimming.
        The two are pretty much inseparable for many youngsters and for six weeks this summer 80 local swimmers took their summer fun to a competitive level diving into the water for the Dolphins at Cooper Farms.
